Answer: 
I have the same problem. The battery seems to drain if it is left in the gun. The buzzing goes on after the head is depressed and the the gun "fires" a second later. When shooting a 1 1/4 nail into particle board, the nail sticks out a quarter inch. It has the be sunk (and counter-sunk) by hand.

I've had this same problem. Sometimes removing and reinstalling the battery helps. Often I have to recharge the battery, even after only a few nails. I don't think it's the battery, but that's what has worked for me. Sometimes I have to remove, then forcefully reinstall the battery. It may be a connection issue.

If you decided to keep the gun (I would return it if still possible) you can upgrade the battery to the larger capacity one (about $100) and give it a go. That worked for me for about 6 months. However, it eventually did what yours is doing.

Answer: 
As far as Base board goes it would be fine but a 16 gauge would hide the holes better. I would not use a 15 for crown because it tends to be looked at and scrutinized more also crown tends to be finicky when it comes to nails driven thru it. the best thing would would be18 brad nailer and16 finish nailer for that.

Answer: 
Hello this is Tangelo from the Home Depot Community!
Most finish carpenters go with either 15 or 16 gauge nails for either Crown or Baseboard, sometimes it depends if your nailing into drywall or plaster board. Plaster board is very dense almost like concrete, so it may require 16 gauge. For some, it's a matter of preference.

The RIDGID R250AF18 can use 15 gauge 34 angle degree collated finish nails from: Grip-rite, Hitachi, Porter-cable, and SENCO. If Paslode makes a 15 gauge 34 degree collated finish nail, they possibly could be used, as well.

Which is extremely frustrating when your on the job and have to break out the hammer and nails, if you have them with you. As far as going through hard wood, you might get the first nail through but it will be very inconsistent. Even on pine not all the nails make it in. Just read the reviews.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JUNK QUIT AFTER A FEW HUNDRED NAILS. NO trouble shooting guide available. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Tool Especially Cordless and NOT NEED for AIR COMPRESSOR!!! It took a while for me to figure out how to insert nails into this product. There is no instruction or demo or on line anything explain how to put new nails. I had to guess myself but managed it worked out well. It would save me half hour to do this... It would be nice to include instructions step by step and how it works as well as a demo... July 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Designed to be disposable I'm a homeowner not a contractor and use this for light duty trim installs. The tool started failing and would stop firing ten minutes after a fully charged battery was inserted; then it stopped working completely. Rigid won't have anything to do with it. The local store tells me I have to spend $100 just for a diagnosis. I'm getting another gun, but you can be sure it won't be by Rigid. October 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just buy a spare- When it's working the tool is great! Lightweight, compact, & compatible with all of my other Ridgid batteries and chargers. However within a one year stretch it has been replaced once for a factory flaw and is back at HD getting repaired for a second time because they never tested it after repairing the tool last time. Apparently if you just throw parts at it, it's supposed to fix the problem. Lifetime warranties are great but if you need to use the tool to make a living you'll need to buy a spare. Mine has been gone for 3 or 4 weeks already and I'm not sure what to expect. February 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by total junk I was doing a big trim job and didn't want a nailer connected to hoses so I bought this gun. Boy was I disappointed in it it didnt get the job done an broke on me so I threw it out and went to lowes and spent more on the Senco fusion FN65DA. It has been the best gun ever so I recommend the Senco over RIGID youll get a more quality tools for your money. May 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for what I do with it. I live in an apartment complex...love to hobby with tools and yet have to keep the noise down. This is the perfect tool for what I do. The tool is light weight and easy to use. It holds a lot of nails so I don't have to be reloading it all the time. It's built tough so I don't feel I have to baby the thing. The depth adjustment works just like they said it would. So far I have made a couple of fences, bird houses, a miniature barn, several doors, and all sorts of cabinets with no problems. Like everyone else, I think the batteries could last a little longer but it only takes about the same time as having a cup of coffee to charge it up again. May 14, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not What I Hoped For I've already returned one because it just stopped functioning with no warning after very little time. Home Depot was nice enough to give me a new one when the first one quit working even though it was past 90 days. However the second one has decided to do the same thing. Just stop working in the middle of a job. I love Ridgid tools it's all I own but this one needs to be tweeked to be up to Ridgids standards. I owned the Paslode for 20 years before I experienced problems unfortunately the parts to fix it were no longer available due to the design changes they made years ago. Going to go with the pneumatic, till I find a cordless that lives up to MY standards. October 4, 2010
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by When it works, it's terrific. I have purchase two of these guns. The first worked when it wanted to. After a freshly charged battery, I could get maybe a couple of dozen shots, then suddenly, it stopped working. There was no rhyme or reason. And the nails were not a uniform depth. It is in for repair right now. The second one was better, but it had quirks. The LED lights would stay on even when the gun was off, then refuse to work once I removed and reinstalled the battery. The only way to keep the batteries alive was to unplug them from the gun every time I set the gun down. Great idea, but still needs work...at least in the two that I purchased. August 21, 2013
